There's loads of it on youtube. Just look at this Smiths footage:
Im not sure how it was all filmed- hand held VHS camera smuggled in by a fan? It certainly preserves forever that generation, with its Thatcher, youth training schemes,second hand jumpers, and paper fanzines. Its as if there still all there in the venue.
Look at this My Bloody Valentine footage:
You can imagine kids in there bedrooms watching bootleg videos of this footage. And now I watch it on my laptop. Funny really.
Anyway, what other footage of indie bands touring the uk uni circuit in the 80s is good?
